The Fish Sniffer - Much Needed Storm Finally Hits
Much Needed Storm Finally Hits

Written By: Danny Lloyd, February 23, 2014
Species: Mackinaw
Location: Lake Tahoe,

"Fishing last week was excellent with great weather and fishermen landing some very nice mackinaw," reported Gene St. Denis of Blue Ribbon Charters.

With the heavy storm and a snow/rain mix on the ground around the lake, many visitors are staying in or hitting the slope,s so pressure will remain nearly nonexistent over the next month.

On a recent trip, St. Denis took clients out and managed limits with one monster fish coming in at over 12 pounds. "Fishing will be tough the next week with all the rain, but soon as we get a break the bite should be on," stated St. Denis.

Mickey Daniels of Mickey's Big Mack Charters reported that he has been catching limits to 6 pounds by working the shallows early in the morning and moving deeper throughout the day trolling minnows with a flasher or dodger off the bottom.

Folks at Tahoe Sportfishing have been fishing despite the cold weather and it has proved to be well worth the time. Recent trips have managed limits almost everyday with some very nice and healthy mackinaw in the 4-6 pound class being taken daily.

With the water levels so low, Sand Harbor and El Dorado boat launch will remain closed. Both the Lake Forrest Ramp and Cave Rock Ramp remain open but remember they're only open from 6am-4pm daily.
